Hillshire Farms Sausage Alfredo

This is one of those quick and easy recipes to keep the ingredients on hand for those nights when you do not have much time to cook dinner.  I have found that if I can keep the ingredients for two or three really quick meals in the pantry that really helps out.
I tried to pretty up the plate a little, but it just didn't look like the restaurant ones.
I don't normally buy that kind of pasta but the recipe showed the little twisty pasta. The regular pasta on the isle at Publix.  So I looked and looked and found it at Target.  It was a Giana brand which made it more expensive.  My husband said after dinner he liked the dinner but that the pasta was a little tough.  I had already decided I would not use that particular pasta again. So I have learned a good lesson for you. I think a regular cork screw pasta or a small penne pasta would work well.  There are a lot of different kinds of pasta out there.
After all that we are ready for the recipe. Slice the smoked sausage into small pieces.
Brown it in the skillet.
2 cups heavy cream
2 teaspoons Cajun seasoning
Turn the sausages until they are brown on both sides.
Add the cream
Stir it around.  Bring to a boil.  Reduce heat and simmer for 3-4 minutes or until mixture starts to thicken.
Have your pasta cooking while the sausage is.  Then drain it.
Add to the sausage.  The recipe said you could add some frozen peas to the mix and they would be good.  I just didn't have any peas.
Stir well.
Add some freshly grated Parmesan cheese.  According to Bobby Deen Parmesan is the best cheese because it has the lowest fat content.  Just a little fyi for you.
Dish up and you can add some additional grated cheese on top.
